Cherry & Arugula Salad

Salads are a perfect way to step up your veggie intake. They make a quick and nutritious lunch and can be prepared with a variety of ingredients.


Cherry season is short and sweet and inspired this simple salad. I got Rainer and sweet cherries on sale this week. Adding fruit to leafy greens is an easy way to add flavor and bulk.

I made this as a single serving salad, so I’m not going to list exact measurements of ingredients. Just add the desired amounts that suit your taste. Make one small salad or a large one to feed a group.


Cherry & Arugula Salad-


  • ¬†Arugula
  • Sweet cherries
  • Rainier cherries
  • Feta cheese crumbles
  • Red onion, sliced
  • Glazed walnuts

I like to use Balsamic vinaigrette dressing on this salad. Add the ingredients to a serving bowl and give a light toss and it’s ready to serve.


The different colored cherries are really beautiful and pair perfectly with the peppery arugula. What is your favorite summer salad?

Thanks for reading! xo
